Double-sided tape for tissues could replace surgical sutures
Double-sided tape for tissues could replace surgical sutures
New adhesive that binds wet surfaces within seconds could be used to heal wounds or implant medical devices. The researchers "designed a material that wicks away the moisture from tissues before rapidly creating a bond," writes Daley. "To absorb water, they chose polyacrylic acid, an absorbent material used in disposable diapers." MIT researchers have developed a new double-sided tape for tissues that could one day be used to rapidly seal wounds or incision sites after surgery, reports the BBC.

Editing mosquito's gene wards off malaria and halts reproduction
Editing mosquito’s gene wards off malaria and halts reproduction
Scientists have looked for immune system factors that might help mosquitoes ward off pathogens such as malarial parasites and indirectly protect humans from infection. Yale researchers found one by editing a single gene, which turns out to be crucial for female reproduction. Researchers in the lab of Erol Fikrig , the Waldemar Von Zedtwitz Professor of Medicine (infectious diseases) and professor of epidemiology and of microbial pathogenesis, edited out a gene suspected of suppressing the mosquito immune system in females of the species Anopheles.

Chemical 'vaccine' helps plants repel pathogens
Chemical ’vaccine’ helps plants repel pathogens
Scientists knew that plants wage chemical war against bacterial, viral and fungal infections. Now they've learned how to "vaccinate" tomato plants with a natural chemical to boost their defenses against a pest that makes leaves shrivel up and die. When plants come under attack from invading bacteria, viruses or fungi, they mount a two-pronged response, producing both offensive chemicals to kill invaders and defensive chemicals to prevent infestations from spreading.
